Hang in there. It will happen when you least expect it to. Good luck!

Hang in there and don't give up. We were with the fertility doctor for almost 2 years. I spent a lot of months curled up on the bathroom floor crying when I thought for sure I was pregnant and I wasn't. I was so depressed and I didn't know what I was going to do, and I was about ready to give up. I am now 21 weeks into a healthy normal pregnancy.

K: congratulations...that really fills me with hope. I find my self on that same path...the other day when I got my period I could not sleep all night I was just thinking "what if I can not get pregnant" or "what is wrong with me". When we first strated trying I really didn't make it a big deal but now it gets harder and harder to see that I am not getting pregnant. I go to church every Sunday and that is all I pray for and everyday throughout the day I just pause and pray for it to happen soon.

RMP, I know how you feel. I started feeling like maybe I wasn't meant to ever to have my own child. I was so unhappy. I'd tell you to try not to let it get you down every month and to try to be patient, but I know that's impossible. Keep praying. I don't go to church regularly, but I was praying every day. Now every day I give thanks and pray that she is healthy (which all signs show she is). How long have you been trying?

K: thank you for the support. That is a beautiful story and I hope that I can one day tell my own story. We have been trying off and on since May...but started trying harder since August.

I have experienced 8 losses, and have 7 children, presently expecting my 8th. child. Throughout many years of expecting, losses, and much hope to get pregnant, I have learned one thing, STAY RELAXED! I used to be so upset and uptight everytime I would get my period, but the doctors gave me the best advice and when I used it, it really did work. I needed to not watch the time of the month, not have intercourse all the time, but every couple of days, and relax. Just remember the date of your last period so you know if you are late. Your body reacts to being anxious and nervous, and needs to relax. It will happen, just don't try so hard, and it will surprise you. Good luck!!

just an idea but when I was trying to get pregnant I wrote down a date that was about a week past the date I was really supposed to start and then just put it out of my mind and ya know what I was a week late before I even realized it....so just relax if you stress you will have a harder time and you really have not been trying for that long anyways but good luck!!

RMP, You WILL be telling your own story one day. Really although it seems like forever to you, you haven't been trying all that long, especially if you have only been seriously trying to pinpoint and get your timing right since August. I a__sume you are using OPKs (ovulation prediction sticks), if not you should start so that you know you are getting your timing right. Also, if you can, you should start doing a BBT chart. That will let you know you are ovulating for sure (which ought to help get rid of some of your stress once you know you are, because that is the main key to getting pregnant), and will get you really familiar with your own cycle and patterns. Some web sites have blank charts you can print, and if you want to keep it on line, fertilityfriend.com is a really good web site. That's the one I used. If I'm giving you too much advice, just tell me to shut up. I've just had a lot of experience being in your position and know the frustration when things don't happen and you can't understand why (The doctor never did find anything wrong with me).

K: trust me you so not need to shut up...I love hearing good advise. That website will help out a lot...thank you! I know it has not been a long time since I have started trying but like you say it seems like forever...especially when you have to wait to take the tests and wait for your period etc. I am just sooo desperate to have a baby it feels like forever. Thank you so much for all the support...I really appreciate it.
